Chateau Haut-Batailley


Location: In Pauillac, the west of Pichon-Longueville-Baron de Longueville.

Size: 170 acres producing 20,000 cases.

Classification: Fifth growth

Vineyard: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc

Vinification: Careful and strict adherence to classic methods. Twenty months in barrels, one-third of which are replaced each year.

History: Part of Chateau Batailley until 1942, Haut-Batailley that year became the property of Madame des Brest-Borie, the sister of Jean-Eugene Borie, who managed the estate and made the wine -- one worthy of the fame the vineyard has enjoyed since the mid-18th century. The estate has no Chateau building. The wines are now made by the owners of Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou who are cousins.

Style: A charming fruity wine with soft berry flavors and vanilla overtones.

Food: Perfect dinner wine for all meat entrees and cheese courses.
